“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” she wrote. “We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.”
West and Kardashian, who are already parents to North and Saint, decided to go the surrogate route to protect Kardashian’s health. The West matriarch has a life-threatening condition called placenta accreta, which caused serious complications during Saint’s birth.
